CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
Restoration comedy. Marriage, money and the battle of the sexes in the classic comedy of manners. Mirabell and Millamant are within an ace of becoming the perfect couple, star players in the game of love, past masters in the art of seduction, each the equal of the other in their glamour and good looks But all that counts for nothing without hard cash. Millamant's inheritance becomes a much-sought after prize in this ingeniously plotted comedy of emotional intrigue and romantic double-bluff. First performed in 1700 Congreve's enduring classic has lost none of its comic perfection and stinging precision. Performers Anna Chancellor, Nick Rowe, James Wallace. AuthorWilliam Congreve.ProducerRoyal and Derngate.DirectorSelina Cadell.
